In-home eldercare professionals wear many titles, including Home Health Aide (HHA) and Senior Care Specialist (SCS). To help ensure that your aging loved ones receive the care they deserve, here’s how to know the difference.
Fall Prevention Week will soon be upon us. This year, it falls on September 18-24. It’s designed to increase awareness of the high incidence of falls by seniors each year and provide information about how you can take some simple steps to protect your senior loved one from falling.

As a result, millions of independent seniors each year rely on informal caregivers or professional caregivers to assist them with what are commonly referred to as “activities of daily living,” or simply “ADLs.”
